I chose this guiatr because it came with an amp and a gigbag (the whole package cost $300). I am getting an Ibanez SR485 in a few months, so I will gladly sell this to a friend. I'll admit, it is fairly cheap and a good beginning guitar.
Model Year: 1997
Price: $200.00 (new)
Where Obtained: The Sound Post
Made in Korea (or china, or japan, whatever) Maple body, ebony neck 18 frets, 4 strings v,t 1 split humbucking,passive black finish strat-style body standard bridge, normal tuners
It is not a high quality guitar. It is poorly balanced, the neck is slow, the frets are not filed, and it is poor compared to othre guitars. But keep in mind I bought it as a beginner's guitar for only $200, so it's not that bad
Sound Quality:
I use it through an Epiphone Studio Bass 10 This is a good jazz bass, unfortunatly I play rock Very warm sounding I have heard much better basses The humbucker is very noisy, and to cut down on the noise I have to turn the tone all the way to the bass side This is much better in a studio, although I wouldn't record with this
It's durable, I'll give it that. It will last for a long time, stays in tune fairly well, no big breaks, although the volume controll is at an angle
